Make sure you grab EVERYTHING you need from the grocery store before Christmas hits.

This year's holiday hours for one Iowa grocery chain have recently been released. It appears that Hy-Vee shoppers will have a bit of a repeat of what happened around Thanksgiving this year.

Officials from Hy-Vee announced that 550 retail business units will be closed on Christmas Day this year. This means that more than 75,000 employees will be able to relax and enjoy the day with their families.

On December 25th all of the company's grocery stores, Dollar Fresh Markets, Hy-Vee Fast & Fresh locations, Wall to Wall Wine and Spirits stores, and Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits locations are going to be closed.

However, Hy-Vee officials did emphasize the fact that people will still be able to pump for fuel at their gas stations.

“As we head into the holiday season, we want to once again show our appreciation for all our hardworking employees by providing them with quality time to spend with their loved ones," said Jeremy Gosch, Hy-Vee’s CEO.

The grocery store giant announced earlier in the holiday season that they would be closed for Thanksgiving as well. Hy-Vee grocery stores are also set to be open on New Year's Eve as well as New Year's Day.
